Our Purpose

We lighten your step, powering
your curiosity to go your own way.

Live Light is our mantra. It is a mindset. We thoughtfully
create lightweight bags with quality materials that make it
possible for you to go explore and discover new places.
Our mantra supports a positive outlook on life. It is about
being true to yourself. It is living an organized and lighter
life both mentally and physically, where less is more. It’s
about looking on the bright side, seeing the glass half full,
and radiating optimism.

We strive to Live Light each and every day, and
we’d love for you to join us!

Employee Highlight

Natalie Timoteo, Buyer for Kipling North America is lending a
helping hand to those in need. With Natalie’s lead, Kipling
North America was able to donate backpacks and school
accessories to Human Needs Pantry in Montclair, New Jersey.
Human Needs Pantry helps to meet the basic needs of those
who are struggling by providing food, clothing, household
essentials, pet food and baby supplies. Donating to HNP
helps Natalie connect the needs of her community to Kipling
and VF’s purpose. Natalie says, “while volunteering doesn’t
always fit into my schedule, it’s important for me to give back
and teach my daughter the importance of helping others”.

Thank you for being amazing, Natalie!

REFLECT

Thursday, June 11th, all Kipling US commerce
paused for 24 hours as a Day of Reflection.
Kipling Americas corporate offices, US retail
stores, and e-commerce were closed. This
allowed 100% of Kipling employees time to
participate in educational workshops,
protests, have important discussions with
family, and to simply reflect

We have work to do and we acknowledge that. Our commitment to this movement will
continue to motivate us to work harder today and every day to be part of a positive change.

The change we seek will not happen overnight, but we commit to this plan. Black lives
matter, human rights matter, you matter and we stand with you.
